Judge Andrew Napolitano was asked this morning whether Attorney General Eric Holder has "fanned the flames" in Ferguson, Missouri, where two police officers were shot last night.
The new unrest came after the resignation of the Ferguson police chief Tom Jackson. On Friday, Holder said the DOJ was prepared to use all of its powers to "ensure that the situation changes" in Ferguson, including possibly "coming up with an entirely new structure."
A reporter then asked whether he meant dismantling the Ferguson police department. "If that's what's necessary, we're prepared to do that," he said.
Napolitano said he views Holder's actions as having "probably fanned the flames" of anger against police in Ferguson.
